Fridge died! Third group of Idolomantis soon.


So… yeah.  One of the refrigerators I use to keep pupae died sometime in the last few days.  I went to open it yesterday to grab some out and a good number of bluebottle flies came busting out.  Thankfully they had either just hatched, or wings did not fold out properly due to the lack of airflow or something, so they just fell out and crawled.  Very disappointing.

Needless to say, any orders containing housefly or bluebottle pupae will be delayed until Wednesday, assuming the new batches get here in time.  I will be ordering some next day on Monday so hopefully they are here Tuesday, or early Wed.  I will send out emails to all those affected.

First two groups of Idolomantis nymphs have been sold out for a few days now.  I am waiting for the third group to fatten up a little before posting them.  They are voracious so it should only be a day or 2.

First group of Idolomantis added, and more.

***UPDATE*** Second group that hatched this morning was just added.  Just a few days behind the first.

There are now Idolomantis nymphs available.  It was a small hatch of around 50, but obviously I am keeping a large group for breeding.  There will be more to come within the next week or 2.  There are also several dead leaf species available, including truncata.  I am still waiting on orchids.  An ooth hatched but not enough nymphs to list for sale.  I generally only list if 20+ will be available.  I am expecting the others to hatch any day.

If you have an existing order and wish to add things before it is shipped, please let me know.

Spiny Flower, Panthers, Boxers, Violins, and Thistles available

The reptile expo in Portland, OR this weekend was amazing, as always.  It was nice to meet some of you in person!

I have updated the available list of mantids.

I have been adding wholesale prices to many of my products, but only wholesale accounts can see them.  If you order often, please create an account as that is the only way I can grant special pricing.  There is no need to request it.  I do it for those I notice order quite often.
